Advance Debt Collection Services

Our professional debt collection services to you include:


If after making all attempts to collect the debt, we are still unsuccessful in recovering the monies owed, the matter can be referred for legal action to Stonegate Legal. Proceedings can be issued out of the Adelaide Magistrates Court located at 260-280 Victoria Square, Adelaide SA.


In SA, a Claim and Statement of Claim is required to be filed and served upon the debtor. The debtor then has 28 days to lodge a Defence, pay the account in full or enter into a suitable arrangement. Should the debtor fail to take steps to resolve the matter, a Request for Default Judgment can be lodged.


Once Default Judgment has been entered, enforcement action can proceed. In SA, an Issue of Investigation Summons is the most effective option. Once an Investigation Summons has been lodged, the Summons is served upon the debtor. The debtor is then required to attend court and provide information in relation to their income, expenditure, and their ability to satisfy the judgment debt. If the debtor has capacity, the Registrar may make a Payment Order at the hearing and a Record of Outcome will be forwarded with details of the orders made.


Alternatively, a Warrant of Sale can be lodged. Once lodged, a Warrant of Sale authorizes the Sheriff to attend the debtors address and seize property to auction in payment of the debt.


In SA, a Garnishee Order in respect of wages and/or salary can only be made with the debtors consent therefore this option should be used as a last resort as getting consent will often be difficult.
